Instead of throwing away your old cereal boxes, you can easily repurpose them into storage boxes for papers or documents. You could also make your own organizers and place them in your drawers.
Simply cut them out and place them as you like to create dividers in any drawer. For bonus points, you can also wrap them in washi tape to reinforce and decorate them as you like.
Use a Tissue Box as a Holder for Plastic Bags
It seems like every household has its own secret stash of never-ending plastic bags. They are good for picking up after your dog, lining garbage cans, and a million other things, but are usually an unsightly mess in and of themselves.
You can up-cycle an empty tissue box by putting plastic bags inside and turning it into a bag holder. You put the bags in with the loops sticking up and fold the end of each new bag into the loops. That way, each time you take out a bag, another one will already be waiting for you!
Spice Up Your Shelves
Spice racks are pretty cheap but that doesn't mean they can't be used for items other than spices. Like your cookbooks for example!
Spice racks have a guard rail that can store items like food, tools, stationery, and books. Place your spice racks in different locations for different needs, be it your pantry or your kitchen. You can even install one in your bathroom for the magazines you flip through there.
Use a Corkboard to Store Jewelry
Yes, you can totally use a corkboard to store your jewelry! Most people use cork-boards for reminders, to-do lists, and calendars, but here's another way to store your valuable accessories.
Not only is this easy to use, but it's also a great multi-tasker. Now you can easily reach your earrings and that necklace without getting your jewelry tangled up.
Use Egg Cartons
Accessories like Christmas ornaments, buttons, and cords can all quickly snag up a lot of space, but storing them in egg cartons can keep them safe from breaking, getting tangled, or getting lost as well as keep them organized.
What's more, you can stack cartons on top of each other! This will make storing your Christmas ornaments super organized and tidy.
